Danielle and Tom get married!
Hi! I had a great day at Danielle and Tom’s wedding. I started the morning at Danielle’s parents home in Coraopolis. Danielle’s shoes, which she called “kicks.” What a cool bride.
Danielle was so calm AND had an awesome manicure. She was very excited about her bracelet (the flower girl had a similar bracelet too).
They had a lovely ceremony at Duquesne University where Danielle went to college. We took some photos on the campus afterwards.
For me, all weddings are exciting and fun. On this day, I resorted to trespassing (last time at Sara and Nigel’s wedding) AND destruction of private property (kidding of course) but I did take down this yellow rope to get it out of my photo. The field was “Closed for reasons of public safety,” but some athletes were using it far away from where we were working. I’m so focused!
Here is the shot that I got. I left the yellow rope in there so you could see where it was. Could you imagine it being right in front of the flower girl!?!? No way! For the record, I put the rope back up when we were finished.
Danielle’s flowers (and her bridesmaids flowers too) were beautiful!
Check out how vibrant the flowers looked with the blue dresses. WOW! I LOVE this photo.
Cake photo is by Christina Montemurro who was kind enough to second shoot with me all day.
Thankfully, this wedding had a record number of AIR GUITARISTS! The groom kicked things off. My fave is the groomsman on the lower right.
When I met Danielle and Tom in February, the first thing that Tom told me about their wedding was that “We’ll have Penn Pilsner or better.” I knew I had to work some beer into my photographs. Tom’s ring on a bottle.
Tom is also a huge music fan. At his request, the DJ played “Sugar Mountain” by Neil Young during the dinner hour. As soon as I heard it, I knew it was Tom’s doing. So nice to get a vibe from the groom during a day!
Ceremony: Duquesne University
Reception: Radisson Hotel Greentree
Beautiful photos, Randi! I had so much fun working with you and seeing how happy Danielle and Tom were to finally get married. As a fellow beer lover, I’m partial to the photos that incorporate beer, but they’re all gorgeous. And of course I admired your initiative in removing that unsightly rope… as well as the dedication to putting it back the way it was. Fun!
